Bottled just about a month ago, so fairly fresh. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Scent is quite hoppy, yet mellow at the same time. Not a very big malt profile, which is what I was hoping for. Some lovely lemon aromas and sweet orange scents. Taste is just as it smells...but a little less hoppy. It is a very tasty beer, but the hops kinda die off in the flavor. I'm sure when it's very fresh that it is a way better beer. Has some similar characteristics as Sierra Nevada Pale. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a very tasty pale ale that is very sessionable. I could see myself easily putting away a six pack of this by myself on a warm summer day.

All Day IPA
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 20 tulip glass

Pours a light copper orange with some yellow highlights on the bottom of the glass. A thin white circle for a head forms along the top of the pour. Random patterns of sticky lace cling to the glassware.

Floral aroma with some citrus whiffs and a baked vanilla cookie.

Toasted biscuit malt backbone with a pleasant citrus blast that opens and brightens the profile of this IPA. Subtle hints of lemon tart and orange juice sweetness each sip. The carbonation level is great too. A well crafted IPA that has an excellent drinkability level.

It's refreshing to have an enjoyable IPA that doesn't overpower the taste buds with an aggressive hop finish. This offering by Founders is appropriately named a "session ale" because I'm ready to pour another freshy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pale gold, slight haze, head has decent retention and lace.

S - Real nice nose on it with a fresh, juicy citrus hop bouquet of grapefruit and pineapple. Little malt sweetness.

T/M - Follows the nose, with a bit of honey malt sweetness mid palate. The light body really falls off on the back end, turning watery by the time it goes down. Leaves behind a pine/ambiguous bitter feeling.

O - Sessionable, just like it was meant to be. However, if the carbonation maintained itself through the whole mouthfeel, this would be a phenomenal brew. But it just falls flat and watery half way through.
